[Extreme Plus] Google is really slow?

For some reason, lately any website on the google.com domain has been really slow. Is anyone else experiencing this? Other sites are just fine for me. Google is taking 5–10 seconds per search there, which is obviously very slow.

In particular, Gmail is really slow, taking 30–60 seconds to load, which is a problem since I need to access it constantly.

I am experiencing the same thing on an American ISP so you're not alone.

could be a DNS issue, try changing to 8.8.8.8 (googles free dns) or lookup opendns, or an alternate rogers DNS.

Don't worry, it's just a small Google outage

Excellent thanks. I'm so used to suspecting Rogers when problems occur that I rarely also consider Google themselves in the equation. Also for the record, I'm already using Google's DNS.
